September 29, 1981 marks the 25th anniversary of the death of the man who turned Liverpool Football Club from a struggling Second Division outfit to one of the bastions of world football. Bill Shankly was a remarkable character, but there were many sides to the legendary Scottish manager. Now a new book tells the inside story. The Real Bill Shankly will provide a fascinating insight into the mind of this unique character through recollections from the fans who idolised him, the players who responded to his inspirational team talks and the family who loved him. The book is compiled by Karen Gill, the great man's granddaughter, who called him 'Grandee' while the fans called him 'The Messiah'. There have been many Shankly books but this one, featuring marvellous photography from the unique archive collection of the Liverpool Daily Post and Echo, will be the definitive official record of his remarkable life - officially endorsed by Liverpool FC. The Real Bill Shankly - published by Trinity Mirror Sport Media - is a book every football fan will want to read. He was of an age when fans came before commercialism. Every single one of them mattered to Shankly. He was unique. This story does justice to the legend.
